Holiday Gift Guide For Creatives

The holiday season is officially upon us. Do you have a certain creative in mind for secret santa but you’re not sure what to send? Indulge in our list of 10 unique gift ideas and allow the consultants at AXS to be your buyers’ guide. We think you’ll love these special treats just as much as we do.


  1. Maybe you didn’t have time or the energy to think of something creative for your client. Make some custom gift wrapping paper with your images and logo.
  2. Want to send something Christmas-y that isn’t trying too hard? Try Amy’s Cookies. The boxes include hand decorated holiday themed cookies.
  3. Highlight your region by sending an item famous to your state. A gift like like oranges, salt water taffy, barbeque sauce, bourbon, a beachy candle; make it even more special and memorable with a related image to accompany it. You get the idea.

  4. What creative doesn’t love a good sketch book? This Giancarlo Iliprandi Sketch Book gathers a diverse collection of media: travel journals, bundles of paper filled with sketches and notebook pages to explore the creative process.
  5. It’s always a win if you can make a promo out of something that will stay on a creative’s desk. We want them to think of you every time they see or use your “promo”. Here’s an example of something super practical and innovative that you can put your logo on.
  6. Are you a portrait photographer? Do you remember those party loot bag toys where you could give the character hair and a beard? How about putting a portrait promo in one of these frames?
  7. Looking for a fun product to brand yourself? I always loved collecting these pens when I traveled.
  8. Did you love lunchboxes when you were a kid? Make the ultimate lunch box with your image.
  9. You can never go wrong with a product from Pantone.
  10. The holiday season is about giving and feeling good about it. Make a donation to an organization that means something to you in honor of the creative.

Now, don’t forget to keep in mind that some companies do not promote or allow gift receiving. This is something you need to be aware of before sending anything. You don’t want to go through all of the hassle to get your salt-water taffy returned to you.

Happy Holidays from Agency Access!
